Steroids to treat blurring after IOL surgery
UK (United Kingdom)
Following IOL surgery 3 months ago on my left eye i noticed that after 2 months now outside my post-operative care period of 60 days, I developed severe blurring/misting in my eye, this also caused glare and halos at night.
I was prescribed LOTEMAX 0.5%, which I believe to be a mild steroid, to be used to clear away any deposits which had formed on the lens. This to be taken twice a day for 5 weeks in conjunction with TIMOLOL to keep any raised pressures under control.
After a week my eye began to clear nicely and now 2 weeks later I am thinking would it be wise to consider reducing my drops to once a day or even stop altogether as I don’t like the idea of taking steroid for longer than I have to.
Also, does this blurring sound familiar to you and what are the causes? Is the blurring likely to reappear after I stop using the drops and what are my options as I can’t keep taking steroids?
If anyone can shed some light on my problem I would be grateful.
